The Library will be closed Monday, January 18th, in honor of Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday. We will return to our normal hours of operation on Tuesday the 19th. You'll find a complete list of building hours on our Web site.
Need a break from the textbooks? The Browsing Room, located on your right as you enter the library, is home to a small selection of recent and classic fiction, popular non-fiction, and literary journals. The CFPL @ UNI collection, a small selection of popular fiction and non-fiction titles from the Cedar Falls Public Library, is located along the south wall. In the upcoming weeks the Browsing room will also provide access to popular major motion picture and well known documentary DVD’s. Stop in for a distraction!
The ABI/INFORM (ProQuest) database has been enhanced recently with several hundred country reports and data from the Economist Intelligence Unit and Oxford Analytica. They can be viewed by clicking the Browse tab after logging on to ABI/INFORM Complete. Look under the Country Reports Heading. Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) Country Data, for example, "contains 370 economic variables over a 50 year period (1980-2030), actual and forecasted. Reports include comprehensive information such as GDP, import/export statistics, industry data, monetary indicators, liquidity metrics, and more." This is for the G20 countries. Data can be downloaded into a spreadsheet. ABI/INFORM Complete can be accessed from the Rod Library Business Portal and the Rod Library home page under Databases A-Z.
